I am a textile historian specialised in lace and passamentary based in Italy, I teach both hstocial lace making and other textile crafts for enthusiasts and fahion design students.
Give us titles of lace books or articles you have written, that you want us to know about.
"A fault in the thread?: examining Fibres taken from laces of the 16th and 17th centuries", Various other papers for lace and textile events in the US, Australia, Italy and for the Textile Museum in St Gallen, Switzerland.
I am amazed at how many interesting presenters you have assembled for Doily Free Zone, the 1st International Symposium of Young Lace Makers. Seriously, I had no idea how many young people were doing such exciting work. I thought I knew a lot about the "lace scene", but now I realize there is an entire tier of young lace makers that is entirely out of my radar. I am hoping this event will bridge that gap. Thank you for organizing this. I can't wait.
Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. Post some photos of your best lace. If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help. I look forward to your participation in our historical discussions.
